SAN FRANCISCO — With the third home run of the day for the Chicago Cubs, second baseman Javier Baez slugged a solo bomb that barely cleared the wall in center field to tie the San Francisco Giants at 4-4.

Giants center fielder Steven Duggar made a valiant attempt at catching the homer, but the ball skirted over his glove and into the seats. An eager fan also made a hearty attempt at catching the dinger and nearly interfered with Duggar in the process. Baez even hesitated when rounding second base, as if he was awaiting a fan-interference call.


The 405-foot long ball marked Baez's 18th home run and 66th RBI of the season, both of which are team highs. The seventh-inning leadoff blast bodes well for Baez, who is set to compete in the Home Run Derby on Monday.
